In Dec. 1969 while exploring Hawaii I felt a call to come to Kona through Rev. Leon Sterling.
In Feb. 1971 Ann and I and 3 children arrived to begin the work of evangelism among the huge hippie population. Brent Brody and came about 6 weeks before we did. We slept out at Bean's beach for several weeks and then ended up camping on the Old Stone Church Property for about a year. It was like a vortex of power in the Holy Spirit where it seemed we could do no wrong. Actually, Our Father, in His great love was just patiently allowing us to get away with a lot of stuff that later we would come to see as missing the mark in His great love and mercy. In those beginning years we published over a half million copies of Acts 29. Personally, I can see a lot of dumb stuff on my part but know now how the Father covers and gives grace as we grow and learn. There was so much good that was done through the power of the Holy Spirit. Yet now, I see how we could have done so much more if we had stayed closer to the Lord and His Word. It was the closest that in my 54 years of being a Christian that I have come to seeing the Acts 5:16 Chruch come alive. I have a lot more I could write but let me stop here with saying I would really love to see it happen again and really explore our Lord's Kingdom to the walls.
And yes, for those of you who know me. My wife, Ann, graduated in 97 and I remarried Sue in 98... Sue is a true, one of a kind, Prov.31:10, Eph.5:22, 1 Pet.3 wife and I am truly blessed to still be around at 76. God Bless you, I love you all. Ken
